One-on-One: Connor Killian

Our final conversation that took place ahead of the NY2LA Spring Warm Up in Milwaukee was with sophomore, Connor Killion.

Connor Killion recently finished up his sophomore season with East Newton High. He said that the season was a bit of a struggle at times and the team finished below .500. “We had great team chemistry, but things never quite came together” said Killion.

He said that he is excited to get spring and summer ball underway. “School ball is always very structured, where this stuff is a lot more loose and free.” He also said that his biggest takeaway from the season was stepping up as a leader after earning a starting role. “I also worked to establish myself as an offensive threat” Connor continued.

Killion will try and carry that scorer mentality into his second year with Yanders Law, where he plans to be a scorer and shooter, while remaining unselfish with the basketball. In his short time with Yanders Law and coming to The Basketball Movement, he says that he is impressed with the progress that has been made.

Just within these few years, the floors have been re-done, these seats weren’t here ... I love coming here and playing with Yanders Law because it is highly competitive.

East Newton High is 73 miles from The Basketball Movement. Coach Lou Carasquillo had the connections to get with Connor and it has been a great fit.

With the first tourney of spring wrapping up and much more action on the horizon, we asked what Killian intends to work on this season with Yanders Law. “I want to keep focusing on my leadership to always be a role model for any team I’m on. For this team I want to fill my role and keep improving upon my strengths.”

As Connor Killian and Yanders Law Basketball continue to put in work this spring and summer, we look forward to seeing continued growth. There are many good things in store for the program coming up, so be sure to keep checking back in with us!
